Major is a Telugu movie which stars Adivi Sesh in the lead role. It is a biopic on Major Sundeep Unnikrishnan. Recently, Zee5 had announced an ‘Original’ which will also feature the same character prominently.
The movie Major was announced long back, but the details about the shooting are still sketchy. One is not sure about its progress so far. However, the Zee5 original is up and running with the entire cast and crew in place.
The Zee5 original is titled as Operation Terror: Black Tornado. It is not an official biopic. Instead, it is based on a book that covers the operation led by Major Sundeep Unnikrishnan during the 26/11 terrorist attacks. Sundeep Unnithan is the author of the novel Black Tornado: The Three Seizes Of Mumbai 26/11.
Arjun Bijilani plays the role of Major Unnikrishnan. It will be shown with a fictional name in the series as Major Mannikrishnan. Arjan Bajwa, Mukul Dev, Vivek Dahia etc. play other crucial roles.
It will be interesting to see if the two, the movie and the web series, come around the same time. Although, a scenario like that appears to be highly unlikely.
